Pattern description from Interweave Knits, Winter 2004: “Kristin Nicholas is a master at coupling color and pattern. In this striking Fair Isle pullover, she’s worked with the unlikely combination of peach red and chartreuse in lively patterns of diamonds, circles, and a waving line. By using a rich chocolatey brown throughout - as background and border accent - Kristin unifies the bright tones and brings harmony to the overall design palette. A drop-shoulder construction makes the sweater easy to knit - there’s no need to interrupt the rhythm of knitting, or the color pattern, with armhole shaping.”
